A grand opening on Fremont Street

The Fremont Street “Fear the Walking Dead: Survival” attraction has been open for about two weeks, and next week cast members and producers of the television horror-drama series will attend the official grand opening party. Although the Tuesday evening VIP shindig isn’t open to the public, you may be able to catch a glimpse of Kim Dickens (Madison Clark), Colman Domingo (Victor Strand), Michael Greyeyes (Qaletqa Walker) and the show’s executive producer Dave Erickson as they walk the red carpet, starting at 7 p.m. Plenty of zombies and military vehicles will be on hand for staging the perfect undead selfie. The event will be at the base of the Slotzilla zip line tower, just off Las Vegas Boulevard.
